This picture “Sensible Shoes” on the right was taken last year in a rich mans tool store not very far from home.
Black and white photography is principally about light and texture. In this case the light is coming from the open door on the right creating shadows and hence form.
A quote about shadows “Think in the shadows” John Ruskin – Victorian art critic and painter. How are you using shadows?
On a similar theme of understanding the black and white medium
“The more one looks,
the more one sees.
And the more one sees,
the better one knows where to look”.
Tielhard de Chardin
So my question to you is “what are you doing to improve your seeing skills?”
